I would start with running network setup wizard again on my desktop. also run a full system test at pcpitstop.com and see what all it tells you. If you are running a 2-Wire..GIVE IT BACK. spend a couple of bucks and get a linksys.

My linksys router wrt54gv8 not connected to work for my laptop wireless but have connection to my desktop


If I understand you correctly. You cannot connect wirelessly at work with you laptop but you can connect with your desktop.
1. The laptop has to be allowed on the network by either MAC address ( Media Access Control) number or an IP (Internet protocol) address.
2. This is done by the administrator of the router. To allow the device to be seen by the router and and assign an IP address to that device to gain access to the server and be able to connect to the Internet.
3. At work you will have an IT administrator that will give a password/ user name to allow you to obtain access to the company server.
I hope this helps. Have a great day.

I have a linksys WRT54g router set up to a desktop. I have 3 laptops on wireless - 2 laptops connect to the network just fine - but the 3rd laptop connects with limited connectivity. What can I do to get...


double check that your router is not broadcasting in only G, make it reverse compatible. There is a chance that the other laptop may not be G compatible. Also check the security key and make sure it is correct. If your blocking connections by MAC address make sure the MAC of the non functioning computer is added. You may want to delete the current connection settings from the laptop and restart with a fresh wireless connection. I hope this helps. Good luck

    Please help...internet won't connect


    You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

    I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

    The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
    1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
    2. Plug modem into router
    3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
    4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
    5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
    6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
    7 Try to surf the net.
    8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

    If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
    If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.

    Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


    Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.

    My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!


    it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
